Hear about the North Plains nGage 2015 conference and what is coming in Xinet V18 from our intreped travelers, Mike and Larry who ventured out to this years conference in sunny Orlando, Florida. Not only was the weather great, but so was the content, speakers, presentations and hearty discussions with clients, partners and vendors. Read on, you will feel like you were there.

My Orlando trip for North Plains' nGage Conference was delightful! Just the 85 degree warmth would've been sufficient, but this conference also had a very rich agenda

During Partner Day, North Plains' new executive team impressed me as enlightened professionals who listened while presenting their product development roadmap. They also asked for future contributing ideas, announced some smart, like-minded speakers for an enriched eGage experience and ended an excellent day with a relaxing cocktail party with many global North Plains channel partners. All were eager to collaborate in an effort to best service multi-site Xinet clients, including SYD Conseil - Cogito Digital Management, Bay Digital, and Visual Products Japan.

North Plains most intriguing development roadmap topic to us at NAPC by far was the upcoming Xinet Version 18 release, which further resolves many of the most important issues affecting current users, as well as potential new users. What's still a future is the ability for a 'master' Xinet file system and database to effectively synchronize with local, disparate deployment instances.

Well folks, just back from the North Plains nGage Conference in Orlando and it was a great one. We experienced great weather and outstanding company with fellow Integrators and clients from around the world. There was an outstanding Keynote delivered by Robert Rose, a Content Marketing Strategist, Author and Speaker. His presentation on content marketing was quite impressive, and I have since looked up a video of a similar presentation to share.

One of the main highlights on nGage was the announcement of some very cool updates regarding Xinet, specifically the forthcoing release of Xinet 18. This had all in attendence very eager to learn more about this roll out.

First on the agenda is that of a certification that was granted by the DAM Foundationwhich is an organization focused on the betterment of the DAM ecosystem. The certification is based on a review of the 10 Core Characteristics that make a DAM a DAM. Now Xinet is on the short list of certified DAM software authors. Congratulations to Dale Dawson and team on this.

What's Your Favorite Trigger Action in WebNative Venture

I just got back from a road trip to a new client site. Training is getting so much more
involved as the programs have more and more built in functionality. Xinet always 
seems to have multiple ways to accomplish whatever your task might be. The jump
to Suite 16 is big, and aside from the newer version of MySQL ( It's version 5 now )
and all that new power, we now have a combined web GUI for FullPress, 
WebNative and Venture.

We're expanding training classes to include several more exercises within each 
application for a more 'hands-on' experience during training. It's true of learning any
new skill, the more you can touch it, the easier it will be to remember later on in
real world situations. We're creating challenges that have more than one way to resolve
and the trainees can use any means available to them to complete the assignment.

I'm finding that there are favorites as far as Trigger Actions. Mine use to be the
'setdatafield' Action. As of last week my new favorite Action is the
'inherit-parent-metadata'
Xinet has a sample of it on their web site and it's proving to be very cool. So I'd like to
do a very unscientific mini survey. You can answer here with comments or email
me directly.
What is your most used Trigger Action in Venture. And...
is there something you "want" in an Action.
Please let me know.
